Efficient Compaction – Operators | Efficient Compaction – Advanced | Nuclear Density Meter (NDM) – Licensed | Nuclear Density Meter (NDM) – Users

Tried, tested and trusted by Civil Engineering industry leaders. Suitable for larger organisations or when a course participant numbers reach five or more. Smaller group numbers and individuals will benefit from our e-learning options which will be available soon.

EFFICIENT COMPACTION - OPERATORS (UNIT STANDARD 25831)

A 4-6 hour in-house course with a practical component focusing on...

  • What compaction is
  • Sources and types of compaction
  • Granular materials (river-run and pit-run)
  • Cohesive materials (clay and silt)
  • Important field tests to ensure best practice
  • Problems with clay and silt soils and how to fix
  • The importance of OWC in the field
  • The importance of layer thickness in construction
  • How compaction happens both primary and secondary
  • 12 types of compaction equipment from plates to dynamic!
  • Practical component consists of detailed and concise Plateau Test that establishes roller patterns and roller efficiency.

At the end of this course candidates will be able to apply relevant new skills to improve efficiency and the final product.
